The Normalization Committee (NC) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has reiterated that all persons implicated in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas ‘Number 12’ video are not allowed to show up at the upcoming Extra-Ordinary Congress.
The video released by the investigative journalist in 2018 highlighted some of the damning corrupt practices within the running of the sports in the country.
Following its airing, it crippled the GFA, forcing FIFA and the government of Ghana to come together and form a Normalization Committee to try and bring onboard some reforms.
Now at the final stages of reforming football before making way for a new president to take over, the NC is set to meet with various stakeholders this week to deliberate on the new status being proposed by the interim body.
Ahead of the Extra-Ordinary Congress, the GFA NC has through a statement emphasized that anyone fingered in the video should not step foot at the gathering.
“Pursuant of the GFA Executive Committee decision at its meeting held on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, at the M-Plaza Hotel, Accra, that all persons implicated in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas Exposé on football titled “Number 12” should step aside until the GFA Ethics Committee decides on their conduct;
“Therefore members are being reminded that the directives is still in force and should be respected”, the statement dated and signed by Deputy General Secretary of the GFA, Alex Asante read.
The congress comes off on Thursday, September 5, 2019, at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Ridge, Accra.
